UNCRC: Right Words, Wrong Order
Have you seen this video about rights for young people? Oi come back! It’s actually really good, really important and really rather clever.
It's called Right Words, Wrong Order shows how the power of words can make a big difference when changing attitudes towards the UNCRC or the United Nation Convention on the Rights of the Children.
The UNCRC is an international agreement that protects the human rights of people under the age of 18 and Wales was the first country in the UK to fully adopt this and implement it in to its policy making. There’s a whopping 42 parts to it that directly concerns young people (you can see them all here) and most of them will be self-evident but that doesn’t mean they’re not important or can be ignored.
The video comes from the Let’s Get It Right website which is this massive resource tool for teachers and youth workers to spread the message about the UNCRC. We’ve decided to cherry-pick some of the more interesting parts and post them here on CLIC. Keep an eye out for more videos and interactive widgets over the next couple of weeks.
